Gregory “Greg” Scott, beloved husband of Shirley Scott, of Calgary, AB, passed away on Friday, June 21, 2024, at the age of 71 years.


Greg was born in Consort, AB, on July 23, 1952, to Charles and Kathleen Scott. He was the beloved brother of five sisters. Growing up in Consort, Greg was active in sports and made many fond memories with friends and family in the community.


He graduated from the University of Alberta with Honours in Education and worked as a teacher for two years in Valleyview and Killam, AB. Greg met Shirley in Valleyview while teaching and they married in 1975. The couple started a family in 1976 with the birth of their son Nolan, followed by Graham in 1979, and Jordan in 1982.


Greg returned to the University of Alberta in 1977 and obtained a law degree. He had a long career as a practicing lawyer in both Camrose and Calgary. He worked primarily in contract and business law, then for Agricultural Financial Services Corp. in Camrose, and later for the Calgary Board of Education and the University of Calgary. He finished his career with his own law practice in Calgary. He took great pride in his career as a lawyer and helping clients.


He was very active in local and provincial politics, serving as an Alderman for the City of Camrose. A major highlight for Greg was serving as a Board Member for the 1988 Alberta Winter Games. Greg was also active in the Kinsmen Club and K-40, as well as many professional networking groups. Once diagnosed with cancer, he enjoyed participating in the Calgary Wellspring group.


Greg loved to travel. He enjoyed many business trips across Canada and throughout the US, and also visited his son Jordan in China. He and Shirley enjoyed wintering in Yuma, cruising to Alaska and the Caribbean, and fulfilling a lifelong dream of travelling to Hawaii.


He accomplished much throughout his life and enjoyed gathering with family and friends and spending time with grandchildren, Arlow, Memphis, and Clyde. He was an avid fan of the Calgary Stampeders and loved music such as Roy Orbison, Ian Tyson, and Wille Nelson.


Besides his loving wife Shirley, Greg is survived by his three sons and their families: Nolan, Anika, and grandson Arlow; Graham and Tanya; and Jordan, Jillian, granddaughter Memphis, and grandson Clyde.


He is also survived by his four sisters, Sharon Scott, Jackie Chin, Gael Lehman, and Janice Lewsaw.
